The interaction between a turbulent flow and certain types of structures which respond to its excitation is investigated. One-dimensional models were used to develop the basic ideas applied to a second model resembling the fuselage construction of an aircraft. In the two-dimensional case a simple membrane, with a small random variation in the membrane tension, was used. A decaying turbulence was constructed by superposing infinitely many components, each of which is convected as a frozen pattern at a different velocity. Structure-turbulence interaction results are presented in terms of the spectral densities of the structural response and the perturbation Reynolds stress in the fluid at the vicinity of the interface.
